Wet n wild I'm His Breezey Makeup Palette Review

Updated on August 15, 2014

In Brief

  • Cheap; mine was purchased for $3.99 @ Walgreen's.
  • Not very pigmented or bright.
  • Decent packaging/pan size.
  • Comes with tiny brush/sponge-tip applicator.
  • Gorgeous indigo color.

The Gist

While it is inching ever-closer to Fall, and color palettes seem to be adjusting to the typical warm-toned hues of orange, yellow, and red, I refuse to let go of my bright summer colors until the official start date. Or never, but I digress.

This refusal stretches to my makeup choices as well, so thus, after browsing the cosmetic section at the drugstore, I left with a five-piece palette, a Wet n Wild palette in I'm His Breezey.

This eyeshadow palette consists of five shades, each labeled for their intended purpose; a light off-white shade serves as a base, while primary and indigo blues take the lid, with a glittery deep blue in the crease, and a periwinkle color for the highlight. The palette also comes with two small tools - a brush, and the typical sponge-tip applicator, which I didn't use in my application.

At first look, the color I was most impressed with was the primary blue. It appears a vibrant yet matte color in the pan, and I couldn't wait to try it out. The crease shade stood out as well, but was nothing exceptional to me as I have seen and own very similar shades.

Process and Impressions

To try this out, I first applied a flesh-toned eyeshadow base. I followed the directions on the packaging for the eyeshadows, and finished off the look with eyeliner and mascara. I set the eyeliner on my lower lash line with the deepest color in the palette.

After using the colors, I've come away from the palette a bit disappointed. The lovely primary blue applied chalky, somewhat patchy, and a lot less pigmented than I hoped. The crease shade is hard to differentiate from the lid color when applied, so I had to layer this one for it to be noticeable. The highlight shade was also sheerer than expected, but still achieves the goal of lightening up the browbone area, and softening the crease color. The base off-white was as expected; it blended right into my skin tone.

My favorite color in the palette is the darkest one, the indigo. It applies the best out of all the shades here, and stays the same color it is in the pan. It sheers out pretty easily, but I find if it's layered, the intensity comes back.

In Conclusion

Overall, on a scale of 1-5, with five being exceptional, I'd place this Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette at a 2.5. It contains a great indigo color, blends fine, and is cost-effective. The only, but significant, downside to the palette is the lack of strong pigmentation. Perhaps if the colors were patted, not swiped, on, and applied over a blue or white eyeshadow base, they would be more colorful.

I'd recommend this palette if you're looking for a less-than-electric but still bright selection of colors for a low price, and/or if you're a beginner who wants to try out something other than shades of brown. It gets the job done, albeit a little less vibrantly than I hoped.

This product was purchased by me. Any and all opinions in this article are my own. I was not paid to review this product.
